Sunset cruise & dipping into the ocean
What is special about Resorts World Langkawi is the fact that it offers Sunset Cruise beginning at 5:00 p.m. daily. Guests get to enjoy this three-hour ride to experience the tranquillity of being in the middle of the sea as the sky changes colour from shades of orange and red to blue and finally black. As guests cruise around Langkawi’s deep blue sea, they will be serenaded by music that allows them to dance the night away. The Langkawi Sunset Cruise Packages includes a free flow of cocktails like Piña Colada or mocktails, as well as barbecue gourmet feast consisting fish, shrimps, chicken, beef, and salads, among others.
To further enhance guests’ experience, a net is cast down on one side of the boat to let them take a dip in the warm waters of the Andaman Sea while being slowly towed by the boat. This activity is called ‘salt water Jacuzzi’, a simple yet memorable touch to the cruise experience that lets allows guests to strip down to their swimming attire and immerse in the water.
Talking about the cruise, from now until 31 December 2016, Resorts World Langkawi offers guests the attractive Sunset Cruise package that is priced at RM760 nett. The romantic package comprises a three-day/two-night stay in a Garden or Sea View Room (subject to availability) and a sunset cruise for two.
